Without seeing it, kinda hard to guess. But somethings that come to mind...

Swelling/fluid from some kind of impact?
Some kind of cyst

My horse had something similar to that in the same spot. It ended up just being a bugbite and went away fairly quick. Is he sensitive when you touch it?

no not at all. We think it is a minor thing but we are going to take him to the vet to see if the vet can give us anything fir him losing his hair again like last summer. He got a shot last summer though and this year I can't get the steroid shot again..

Then I wouldnt worry too much about it. It could be just an allergic reaction to a bug. Good luck and keep us posted

We took duke to the vet to be on the safe side. It was from the horse that he wasnt suppose to be in a pasture with.. :/ me and my parents are really ticked off right now. Mainly because, first of all my fly sheet is ripped with a huge hole in it from the kicks chance throws at him and it caused a hole. That's 100 dollars right there and then the vet was 100 dollars.. so we are really peod because it is all heathers fault for moving him!!!!!! So we are looking for a new place to start boarding.. if anyones lives in mobile, alabama please tell me of any horse stables you know of.. but yeah duke is fine... it is just fluid built up from the impact of chance because duke is covered in kick marks.. but I have to do cold therapy and give him bute for the swelling, so my prayers were answered... thanks for all of yall concerns......
